All humans have emotional baggage, and yet, so many of us are unaware of what we're carrying until we hit a low point, experience a health crisis, or recognise that we're in a painful pattern with our relationships or how we feel about and treat ourselves.
Natalie Lue expands her popular blog Baggage Reclaim into podcast form with a weekly show about how to live and love with more self-esteem by unpacking, decluttering and tidying up our excess emotional baggage. It's time to reclaim yourself and experience more love, care trust and respect.
Ep. 277: Knowing When To Stop
Natalie shares some of the realisations she's made after making a big decision.
The Joy of Saying No: A Simple Plan to Stop People Pleasing, Reclaim Boundaries, and Say Yes to the Life You Want
Ep. 276: New Year, New No, and Recognising the Dark Side of People Pleasing
In the final episode of 2022, Natalie shares a deleted chapter from her forthcoming book, The Joy of Saying No. She breaks down how, to escape the chains of the roles we play and trying to keep up with our and other people's often unrealistic expectations and projections, we might act out behind the scenes, go rogue on the version of ourselves that people have come to expect from us, lash out, or experience the toll of the chronic stress of our people-pleasing habit.

Can’t get enough
Episode 95……I listen to it weekly. I’m still not practicing the advice. Lol. But that’s what the other episodes help with. I love it though. These all make so much sense.
This podcast is NECESSARY
This podcast is a key supplement to my self work journey. I highly recommend it! She’s able to untangle complex issues and give balanced advice that not only validates many of my experiences but helps me to understand them better. More importantly, it holds me accountable and forces me to work through my own issues and decisions (i.e. people pleasing, inverted narcissism). From the bottom of my heart, thank you sooo much Nat! I feel like you’re my therapist:)
Thank You Nat
I fist discovered Baggage Reclaim the blog several years ago after a string of situationships, bad relationships, and other annoying run ins with men. I found it in the usual way - while searching the internet looking for a magic bullet to manipulate a man who wasn’t interested in me to BE interest in me!
Unfortunately not all lessons have been learned and 2021 started off with yet another let down from an EUM. So I went back to the beginning of the blog, bought the Ebooks, and took another spin through the podcast.
2 weeks ago I decided to end the longest and most unhealthy relationship I have ever been in. One that had lasted 20 years. My relationship with cigarettes. This new journey has had Nat’s advice clicking into place in ways it never has before.
My life long addiction to smoking has paralleled
my life long pattern of unavailable relationships. Hoping that I can learn and grow from the quitting experience and apply it to my love life.
Nat thank you for all your posts, your books, and your podcast episodes. You have been an indispensable companion on this journey!
